Using the latest in augmented reality technology, Atlas invites spectators to interact with holograms in the world around them by building virtual cities. Holographic ‘seed launchers’ cause houses to grow. The growing houses follow some urbanistic rules, adapting to their environment. These cities take on a life of their own, with or without the interactions of users, just like living organisms...
The work provokes a reflection on urbanism, architecture, and the influences of these things on our lifestyles.
The exhibition has been produced by artists Yann Deval and Marie G. Losseau, in collaboration with Dr Fridolin Wild from the Performance Augmentation Laboratory at Oxford Brookes University.
